I am a trained professional that offers physical, emotional, and spiritual, support to parents and the rest of the family. I also offer breastfeeding and formula feeding support, light household maintenance, family nurturing and instruction to the birthing parent and/or other family members in the care of a newborn. It is my job to make the transition to parenthood easier, to help the birthing parent during the recovery period and to ascertain what the family needs help with and provide the instruction. My main objective is not to take over complete care of the newborn, but to educate and support the family so that they will feel empowered to care for their baby themselves.
